The relationship between trees and people goes right back to the forests of the first humans, and our ambivalent engagement with trees can be traced through to the here and now, via fairy tales, mythology, and science. But this relationship begins afresh for each one of us in childhood.

For some hard-to-define reason, trees provide a kind of nourishment of the soul, whatever our belief system. We find a freedom and a deep comfort when we climb a tree; when we sit with and commune with something we imagine or sense as sentient (even if in a vastly different way to ourselves).

The "Trees I've Loved" project on ABC RN explored the personal connection we feel with our special trees, and called to our audience for their stories. Many evocative and unique reflections have been gathered into a book, 'In Their Branches' – and this album is its companion, featuring music from sixteenth-century works for lute to compositions by contemporary Australian composers.
